I walked into the living room after a busy afternoon of holiday prep to find that Ellie created this beautiful design re-purposing poker chips. Isn't it awesome? #beautyEverywhere #littleArtists http://ift.tt/1NxjCE9

Drumroll please..... My 12th and final #hitofude for the #yearofhitofude is complete! I love have quirky and awesome the Noro Taiyo knit up! It is hard to believe this goal to knit 1 a month this year is complete, and 2015 is almost over. Where did the time go? What will 2016 bring? 💞💑 #ravelry #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram http://ift.tt/1QtkblX

As a #monogamousKnitter, I usually work on 1 project at a time, but there is something to be said for the high of finishing 2 sweaters in 2 days! #Crosby henley out of @yarnvszombies Chubby base, #cable-tastic, washed and blocked like a dream, and ready for buttons! #ravelry #knittersofinstagram #knitFastWinterIsComing http://ift.tt/1NSiuME

Another scrappy #baableHat is #taDone and ready for gifting! This one is knit as written but with fingering held double throughout, and features a #makeItWork fix on the crown when I ran out of the blue yarn. Nothing a #pomPom can't fix! #hatPatronus #ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #colorworkaddiction http://ift.tt/1NjoX1C

I love color work knitting so much that I had a hard time stopping on this swatch for the #TiberCardigan from the awesome @alexiswinslow #SpeckleAndStone. The green is gorgeous, but I think the lighter tonal parts are getting lost a little. What do you think? Should I look for something with more contrast? #ravelry #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #colorworkaddict http://ift.tt/1jRxI8G

Savor or devour my just arrived 'friends of the forest' kit?! I love both the #highlandhandmades yarn colorway and fabulous, coordinating #girlcavebags bag print. Do I immediately cast-on a project or hoard it? I think this would be a gorgeous #cacheCacheCowl #knitstagram #knitting #ravelry http://ift.tt/1SP6Py7

In between bouts of designing and then ripping back on secret projects, I have been guiltily working on this month's #hitofude. The #Noro color changes have me wanting to get to the next color and then the next! Max is certainly impressed 😉 #ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/1QpHOKB

December's #hitofude, the final gift in the #yearofhitofude is on the needles! It is going to be so colorful and fun in #noro Taiyo. My Aunt will totally rock these colors and I love the base for year long wear with the mix of cotton, silk, and nylon with the #wool. #ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram http://ift.tt/1Nt57xT

I jumped on the #baablehat bandwagon! What a great way to use those partial skeins of fingering weight yarn (held double). I have a small head, so I used US5s for the #colorwork. 😍💞😁 #ravelry #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #knitting http://ift.tt/1QfJmqp

Grafting is truly magical, and I can say that now that a day has passed since I grafted these over 100 stitches per side together 😉 I can't wait to wear this #vacillate inspired cowl, once the double layer of fabric finally dries! http://ift.tt/1lugX4q
